ANGUS Independent Advocacy held their annual social evening for volunteers, staff, directors and friends in the Colliston Inn recently.

Over 30 people attended the meal and played bingo. There were many prizes won in the bingo and raffle with the star prize being a meal voucher donated by the But ‘n’ Ben in Auchmithie.

The Rev. Canon Dr John Cuthbert, convener, welcomed everyone to the evening and thanked the volunteers for their hard work as advocates safeguarding peoples’ rights and the directors for their contribution.

AIA is a local voluntary organisation which provides independent advocacy to adults who have mental illness, learning disability, dementia, acquired brain injury or frailty in old age.
